I'm Jim Morgan, Captain Morgan on the BBQ competition circuit.
I'm from North Carolina and have lived in Myrtle Beach the last
20 years. I'm here to ask questions.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for real chefs...cooking
is more than a hobby for me. I'm a radio DJ and have a cooking
segment every Thursday morning. I love cooking outdoors
and competing in food contests, which are common here.
I doubt there's much I can contribute here, but I will be happy
to offer what I do know about southern cooking and barbecue if
anyone should ask.

I've had the opportunity to interview Bobby Flay and Louis Osteen,
both Beard award winners, and look forward to learning on this forum.

Hi Jim and welcome.

Sounds like you have plenty to offer.Do you share even a wee bit of your BBQ secrets.
Do tell.
I'm afraid the extent of my BBQ eating experience in America is my own attempts when we rent a place and Sticky fingers. :o
We dont get much BBQ weather at home and we're really novices when it comes to the art.
I do a mean pulled pork tho. But its done over 9 hours in the oven.

Anyway Cap'n have fun, look forward to hearing from you

Hello and welcome to Cheftalk.

As you can see, lots of interest in BBQ information here. Frankly, the Scottish weather doesn't really lend itself t BBQ-ing! (although we try!)

I hope you will have a look at the articles, photographs and blogs on the site - lots of interesting information contained therein.

We would also like you to join in on threads you find interesting, or start your own!

I like to grill in the rain, not near as hot out, so Scotland should be brilliant. Anyway Cap'n, we talk about everything from wood vs propane (and propane accessories) for grilling, to the best cuts of meat, to the better version of potato salad. You got a potato salad recipe with anything special in it?

and just to stir the pot...you a "wet" bbq guy or a "dry" bbq guy?

I go dry myself with a dippin sauce on the side.

thanks for the warm welcome.

Bug, I don't keep my secrets....most of what I know has been
learned from boards like this and cooking with friends who share
their experience. It would be wrong of me to come here asking
questions and not share anything I know.


I'm sure you all know about the regional differences in bbq. I'm a
North Carolina guy, so barbecue to me means smoked pork with
a vinegar pepper sauce. I like to grill and smoke many foods.
For ribs, I like a dry rub only and a sauced version. All the foods
I smoke are rubbed, and almost always are sauced. However, I'm
not a snob like so many in the bbq world....what works for Memphis
and Texas is excellent, and what works for North Carolina is also good,
albeit more of an acquired taste. Haven't had much time to look
around the site, but really looking forward to it.

Thanks again.
